Have you ever wondered why some ladies used hair wraps while they sleep?

The answer is simple! This is their beauty secret to keep their hair big, shiny and beautiful. Those who knows the benefit of wearing a silk hair wrap to sleep, they swear by it. This is because silk hair wrap keeps their hair free from frizz, knots, tangles, and dryness.

Silk hair wraps helps to reduce friction and damage caused by your cotton bed sheets. The rough texture of cotton causes friction that weakens your hair follicles, which in turn leads to knots and frizz. Cotton also absorbs moisture from hair, resulting in dryness and breakage. 


Hairs get tangled easily when you toss and turn at night. That is  why you will notice loose hairs on your pillow when you wake up in the morning.

To prevent tangles,brush your hair before bed to remove knots and gently twist your hair up on top of your head and wrap it with a silk scarf to prevent new tangles from forming. Covering your hair in this way can also help you avoid breakage and prevent split ends.


If you naturally curly or prone to frizz, you will usually wake up in a tangled mess despite you apply oil and comb your hair right before bed. Covering your hair in 100% silk can can help secure your curls in place and keep the spirals intact. This will help to make your morning hair routine a breeze!


When you wear a silk hair wrap, the silk doesn't absorb moisture. In contrary, it will encourages the natural oils on your scalp to spread from root to tip. With that, this can prevents greasy hair as oil is no longer concentrated in one place. Also, keeping your hair off your face and pillow prevents the oils and product from your face from transferring to hair that cause greasiness. 


Keeping hair covered and off of your face at night will help prevent the oils from your hair getting into the pores on your face and potentially clogging them. This helps to prevent blemishes from forming on your face. 


If you have spent money on getting your hair professionally done, you want to make it last as long as possible. You can help to keep your blowdry last longer by covering your hair when you sleep – the silk causes less friction, so helps to keep shape in place


Overnight hair treatments can help repair and protect your hair from damage. To ensure that the treatment completely saturates your hair, use a hair wrap. The hair wrap also helps to keep messy oils and creams from transferring to your pillow, sheets, and face.

Thanks to the lack of knots, tangles, and frizz, sleeping with a silk hair wrap makes things much less stressful when it comes to managing your hair in the morning. You can save time and stress less every single day!
